Founded in the mid-'90s in Los Angeles, California USA, this Alternative-Rock band initially comprised of vocalist + bassist Max Collins and guitarist Jon Siebels. The final line-up was completed, when Tony Fagenson, son of producer Don Was, joined on drums.
By the fall of 1996, the trio secured a contract with RCA Records who released their self-titled debut album in the spring of 1998. The first single, "Inside Out", surprisingly hit #1 on The Modern Rock chart, #5 on The Mainstream Rock Tracks and #28 on The Billboard Hot 100, while the CD cracked The Billboard Top 200 chart at #33 getting the platinum plaque. "Leech", the second single, was also a significant hit at Modern and Active Rock radio as it climbed up to #6 and #10, respectively, on the Billboard charts.

"Think Twice", released in summer 2003, crashed into the top 10 of The Modern Rock Tracks, it preceded the group's third album, "It's All In Your Head", which rose to #27 on The Billboard 200.
The trio disbanded in 2004 at the band's last show in St. Louis but rose from the dead in the spring of 2008 for Baltimoreans in Towson, Maryland, with Collins, Fagenson and new guitarist Matt Bair.
